What is a Bitcoin merchant account?

A Bitcoin merchant account is a type of payment processing service that enables merchants to accept payments made with Bitcoin. It works similarly to a regular merchant account, where the merchant provides a secure platform for customers to send payments via Bitcoin.

With a Bitcoin merchant account, merchants can convert Bitcoin payments into their local currency, allowing them to accept payments from customers anywhere in the world. Additionally, some merchant accounts also offer features such as fraud protection, integration with existing payment gateways, and even marketing tools.
